Jimkata are a three-piece anthemic, synth-washed, electro-rock band based out of Ithaca & Los Angeles.
With a triumph of infectious pop hooks & candid lyrics, Jimkata have built a distinct sound which has been resonating with listeners across the country.
Friends since middle school, Evan Friedell, Aaron Gorsch and Packy Lunn infuse Jimkata, with an adventurous musical streak & relatable lyrical themes. Mixed in with the modern sensibilities & hard driven indie rock are influences drawn from the likes of Motown, singer-songwriters & even old country songs, where storytelling & a quick turn of phrase share priorities with melody & the beat.
After taking a two and a half year hiatus following the release of six studio albums & the successful building of a vibrant, grassroots fanbase, Jimkata released their new single “Wanna Go.” Narrating the negative effects of social media & how it can make you feel insignificant, “Wanna Go” is about perception vs. reality in a time when we're flooded with everyone presenting an idealized image of themselves and their lives to the world. The trio explains, “It took on an extra layer of meaning for us after the pandemic began and we all started quarantining, stuck in our houses and apartments, staring into our phones, longing for a different world & becoming overly acquainted with our immediate surroundings.” Quirky melodies & funk-fueled bass lines provide the backdrop for their layered harmonies, emitting a summery, feel-good sensation.
